Clam Linguine Entree

This clam linguine is a wonderful dish if you are a clam lover. It’s quick and only requires a handful of ingredients.

I received this clam linguine entree recipe verbally from my mother-in-law. As such, the ingredient measurements have been established over my various attempts to make the dish. I’ve finally got it down to a science. The best part is that this recipe doesn’t require fresh clams (although you could use them) so you can buy the ingredients ahead of time and make this recipe when the mood strikes you. The flavor is amazing and if your family is anything like mine, you will be struggling to set aside left-overs. Hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
